Two women and a vulnerable young boy were left shaken after they were threatened by a masked gang who gathered outside a house in Londonderry.

Police received a report of a number of masked men outside a property in the O'Casey Court area at around 9.50pm on Wednesday night.

It was reported one of the males possibly had a gun.

Inspector Ian Hunt said: “Three people in the property, including two females, aged in their 60s and 40s, and a vulnerable young boy were uninjured during the incident, however, this was a frightening ordeal for the occupants who were left shaken.

"I am appealing to anyone who was in the O’Casey Court area last night at around 9:50pm and saw any suspicious activity, or anyone who knows anything about this to contact police at Strand Road on the non emergency number 101, quoting reference number 1353 of 22/11/17. Information can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
